Hot Outside–Stay Inside And Quilt

Joseph’s Coat, Lucy Boston–Patchwork of the Crosses, quilts, weather

This wasn’t even as hot as it got yesterday –  it actually got up to 104.5 by 5 – this clock on the left is an hour or so off – never use it so I don’t’ reset it.  But I won’t talk about the heat other to say that I am staying in the house most of the day and I am piecing POTC, I am quilting Joseph’s Coat, and I am slowly getting the green stem appliqued all the way around the Red and Green quilt – not working much on that one I admit.  And I know we are all suffering from the heat – or a good many of us in the US that is.


Joseph’s Coat has been cranked down again the other day and I have been quilting while watching episode after episode of “Folye’s War”.  A couple more cranks of the rollers and the light yellow colors will be gone.


Another POTC block done and another one that I hope to finish this morning at quilt group and if I don’t finish it there I most likely will here at home as I will be staying in the rest of the day when I do get home – 108 today they say.


Last night I went outside at 8 PM to water a few plants on the porch and it was still 100 degrees – I had thought to sit outside for a little while to enjoy that time of the evening as usually I do.    Needless to say – I went back inside – I have a feeling this will be a long summer.  We are now in an Extreme Drought they say for my area of Arkansas.  We need rain badly – some of the trees are turning brown already and here it is the end of June not September or October – they might be dead by then.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Oh I feel for you Karen. A few years ago we had a very dry summer, and it has taken three years for the trees in the park to come back to life. The evergreens seem to be the worst hit I think.
    Our friends in Cozumel right now are experiencing 108 with the humidity. Not the most pleasant of weathers.
    So stay inside and quilt dear girl, you have so much to do!

    I feel grateful atleast here in Arizona we don’t have the humidity to go with the heat. It’s more like a dry oven. And I’m so grateful for airconditioning! I hope things get better soon in your area.

    Praying for so many areas……drought, fires, flooding…..everyone is hit in some way! A bit more on the moderate side so far but climbing. Headed for Bettendorf,IA, for a nephew’s wedding. The extreme heat and storms are definitely in that area (temps high and heat index supposed to be 113F with high humidity…ugh!). Will try to remember this next January! Much to do today before we leave. Stay cool…….Hugs,D
